i would like to ask if a Raspberry Pi B+ can act as a Hard Drive using USB to USB connector? All i want is to access the MicroSD card of Raspberry Pi B+ to my computer using USB to USB connector? Thanks for your answer(s).

    No. You can use any of the common networking protocols, ssh, ftp, afp (even Samba) over Ethernet or WiFi.

This is not possible as the Pi model b+ has a built in USB hub that prevents it from being configured as a slave device


one simple(yet troublesome) way would be to use a card reader and connect it to your computer. Otherwise, you can access the files remotely https://www.raspberrypi.org/documentation/remote-access/

Just follow the FTP part and I hope this helps ^^ Cheers
